Croquet in Greece

The Croquet Club of Corfu is the first croquet club in Greece and was set up in 2006 at Kontokali, 7km north of Corfu town. It is beside a marina and well positioned for hotels and restaurants. Key Members, with the vision to stage this event, are Rich & Karen Quilter and Janneke von Rosmalin.

The club now has three lawns, of a good standard, in idyllic settings. In 2007 the club held its first AC tournament. Sixteen Brits flew out to contest three events as part of a croquet-based holiday. AC events have been repeated several times since, with great success. More information on the club is available at their Website:

Richard Thompson is managing the Corfu Croquet Holiday, incorporating the First Greek GC Championship in May 2016. You are invited to contact Richard to reserve places on this special holiday, tournament and croquet fun
